KAMPALA - Church of Uganda Archbishop Stanley Ntagali has called for commitment and faithfulness among married couples, saying God established marriage for man and woman to complement each other.

He said Christian couples must be there for each other in both the good and the difficult times of their marriage lives – in richness in poverty, in sickness and in good health.

The clergyman placed emphasis on the importance of existent unconditional love and insisted that lovers need to spare ample time for each other so as to distance themselves from the idea of divorce in case of misunderstandings.

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast, and it is not arrogant or rude,” Ntagali made allusion to the Bible (Corinthians 13: 4-13).

He mentioned this after blessing the marriage of the son of health minister, Dr Ruhakana Rugunda on Saturday.

Sam Rugunda and Matilda Mutanguha got married at All Saints Cathedral in a ceremony attended by a number of high-profile people, including Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.

On his part, the Premier said government supports the institution of marriage because it promotes social stability in the society.

“Studies have shown that most problems and delinquent tendencies are dominant among children who are born in unstable societies,” he said.

Also notable at the ceremony were Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki; NRM vice chairman, Moses Kigongo; former IGG Jotham Tumwesigye, and minister John Nasasira.

The newly-wedded couple took their vows and exchanged rings before a fully-packed church, and promised to “love, comfort, honour and protect” each other through their marital life.
